Customising Error messages

I am at present in a testing program pre rollout, and i would like to customise the error messages found in SBerrors.ini, however the only files i can find via search are sberrors.xml.

I was wondering either where to find sberrors.ini to edit it if possible, or to ask is there a way to edit the XML file to customise the erro messages for users

RE: Customising Error messages

you can edit the XML file with any unicode text editor (ie Notepad), but be warned - support may decide not to support you if they can't understand the error messages you are giving them.

What message do you want to change?

You can edit the SBErrors.xml file but customizations will not display in pre-boot.  They will display in Windows UI though...

It would be nice if this file could modify the default error messages pre-boot.
